Rep. Jim Jordan revealed last night on Fox News that fourteen whistleblowers from the FBI have come forward to Republicans in Congress to let them know what’s really going on at the agency.

More than a dozen FBI whistleblowers have come forward to Republican investigators in Congress, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
The congressman, who is the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News host Trey Gowdy the number has risen to 14 after the FBI raid at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
“Fourteen FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people,” Jordan said. “There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem. Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us what is baloney, what’s going on — the political nature now of the Justice Department — God bless them for doing it — talking about the school board issue, about a whole host of issues.”
Just two months ago, Republicans only had six FBI whistleblowers coming forward…
This would appear to be quite a bump from a little more than two months ago, when Jordan told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that, in total, six FBI officials have approached the committee, two related to a controversy surrounding a school boards memo and four related to Jan. 6. At the time, in early June, Jordan sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray warning that multiple former FBI officials were coming forward with information suggesting the bureau was “purging” employees with conservative viewpoints.
“It is becoming a well-worn trail of agents who say, ‘This has got to stop.’ And thank goodness for them,” Jordan said on Sunday. He also expressed the view that voters will vote in a Republican majority in Congress, allowing the GOP more power to carry out a bevy of investigations.
I think it’s great that FBI agents are risking their necks to become whistleblowers against an agency that is clearly corrupt.
I just hope Republicans in the House do something with it once they win back the majority, if not before.
If nothing else, Pelosi’s hack Jan 6th committee has show the power that a committee can wield. While it’s unlikely the Justice Department would cooperate with Republicans – and we all know the garbage media won’t – I hope Republicans don’t waste what these agents are giving them.
